    First Chambers lamenting Frerrote and Now Booker lamenting Chicago. Not sure how to take this they are starting to sound a bit disgruntled



    ''Look, I'm not going to go up there thinking about sticking it to them,'' Booker said. ``I look at it as what happens is going to happen. Things are predestined. So I guess it wasn't meant for me to have a successful season somewhere.

    ``I just look at it as another page turned in a chapter in my life. We all go through changes, we all have obstacles, we all go through tests. After I was able to reflect on that trade after the fact, I came to the conclusion that me staying in Chicago just wasn't meant to be.''

    I have think this for a couple of weeks now, but haven't said anything. But now that you bring it up......

    I believe this team, for the most part, has quit on Coach Saban. Whether it be frustration from losing, personality conflict, or Saban's tactics wearing thin on some guys.
    Obviously, I am not in the room and have zero proof. But this is just a feeling I have had for 2 or 3 weeks now. Hopefully I am wrong and the implosion of this team is not imminent.
    But if I am not wrong, I think this will be the last season for either Saban or some the fan favorites from the last decade. Depends on who win the power struggle.

    Well a win against Chicago would go a long way towards repairing this but they don't seem to have the attitude it takes to win right now. So I don't know what to think anymore.

    And that's my point. It seems this team has tuned out Saban and given up on him and his message.

    They are high paid players that need to work no matter what. To say they given up on saben is an excuss for the player to lazzzzzyyy, and have no heart. They are the ones on the feild. so they dont give up on the coach they give up on themselfs and those are not the kind of players that we need here. Those are just excusses. I go to work every day in factory. Just because things dont run good for a week does not mean that i can just give up and not do my job they way it is supposed to be done or i would get wrote up. NO Excusses

    Yes, I am really starting to think Saban needs to clean house on Offense and start over. These guys complaining is becoming a cancer for the offense. Even Wes looked like he was playing half heartedly toward the end of the Packers game and that guy has the most heart of any NFL player i've ever seen. As much as it hurts to say I think this offense would be better off in the long run without Booker, Chambers and McMicheal on the team.

    I understand where he is coming from and I think we all need to be more understanding of Marty.

    He has separation anxiety, he ALWAYS lacks separation between himself and the defender!!!! :fire:

    Bingo! Get rid of the whiners. They don't perform for whatever reason and start thinking the grass is always greener on the other side. Get rid of the dead weight.

    Look at it from his perspective. He's the leading WR for the Bears and he makes the Pro Bowl. They are an up and coming team.
    Then they trade him to a dysfunctional team coached by DW and quarterbacked by the revolving 2 headed monster of A Jay Fiedley AND there is no running game.
    He plays hard his couple of seasons here and things are looking up with Saban last yr.
    Now they are a doormat again. I don't blame the guy

    Were the bears that good when he was leading them in receptions? I don't remember many memorable Marty Booker highlights in the playoffs.

    If some of these guys played as hard as they whined Miami would still be 1-6 because there is no o-lne! :D

    The Bears I dont think had a bright future 3 years ago.....the guy just loved playing in Chicago....Seems like he's depressed...Noone can honestly say Miami and Booker has been a good fit no matter who you blame.....

    The guy said he thinks the team has given up on Saban. He doesn't really know he just thinks by the way it looks to him.

    I concur. Unfortunately, it's not going to be that easy to move these players.

    Yea he went to the pro-bowl and then got traded. But the Bears still didn't do anything for at least 2 seasons. I think Marty has always been bitter about the trade because of the way it went down..

    Can you blame him? He's done everything asked of him. I would imagine it must be a little irritating watching the Bears go 7-0 while you are playing for a 1-6 laughingstock team.
    He and Welker have been pretty consistent. Booker has made some tough catches and had some hard falls this season.

    I agree with you. I kinda like Booker when he doesn't get hurt. Which is quite often. Its irritating to watch the Patriots win every season, Its irritating to watch us lose to teams that we should beat. Alot of things in life are irritating,

    Now we are onto something...If wins = $$$ then the Dolphins would be right there with NE in a dog fight. What incentive do these guys have anymore? They get in the Benz after the beatdown and head to their $750,000 house in a gated community. No worries because they get it either way...:confused:

    What kind of wousbags do we have on this team??? Quitting on the coach, what a joke. I do feel like many Dolphins players have no pride. Any player who quits on any coach isn't worth having on your team anyway.
